Today's Environmental Solution is Sealed Air's Yesterday's News(TM) Padded Mailer

SADDLE BROOK, N.J. (July 9, 2008) -The Yesterday's News(TM) mailer from Sealed Air offers customers one of the strongest environmental profiles of any protective mailing product available, including high-recycled content, convenient recyclability and conservation of natural resources in manufacturing, distribution and shipping. The padded mailer is the newest addition to Sealed Air's family of Jiffy® brand products for cost-effective, protective mailers for small parcel shipping.

The Yesterday's News(TM) padded mailer includes many environmentally responsible features that set it apart from traditional padded mailers. Recycled newspaper is used to create the mailer's inner protective batting, while the natural outer and inner kraft material is made from 100-percent recycled content and eliminates the need for dye used to create traditional gold color used for most mailers.

Customers will appreciate how easy it is to recycle the Yesterday's News(TM) mailer, as it is recyclable with mixed paper such as magazines, directories and junk mail. As with all Jiffy® mailers, the Yesterday's News(TM) mailer offers postage savings and environmental source reduction with less weight and solid waste than cartons. The Yesterday's News(TM) mailer's reduction in materials allows for a decrease in bag weight and carton size compared to the traditional Jiffy® padded mailer while still offering product protection.
